Notes
Rodney Garlant said

Mr and Mrs Tripp lived in a cottage (now demolished) opposite Mrs
Strawson. They had a huge garden with a corner stacked with wood which
bordered the long extinct Drury Street chapel. Being of similar age I
was friendly with the three sons, mainly Tom and Eddie. John, I seem
to recall, was a bit older. The cottage had no electricty supply and I
remember being in the house on dark winter nights playing by the light
of tilly lamps - very special. I think Tommy worked on the farm for
Harry Barker at Blankney, but I may be wrong.
